GOOD NEWS – Active Duty Military, Did You Know?
Your Congress Passed a Law in 2004 requiring federal employees to receive training on the US Constitution every September 17, on every anniversary of that 1787 document signing event. Public Law 108-447 and 36 USC 106 require that Commands provide employees with informational and training materials on the Constitution.
